Three couples spend an afternoon together at a BBQ and something awful happens that will change all of their lives. Sam and Clementine are easy going and relaxed and have two young children. Erika and Oliver are childless uptight accountants and Vid and Tiffany are the life and soul of every party. As we slowly find out what happens we get an insight into all of their lives and why they have become the people they are. It takes a long time to discover what happened that afternoon but it is worth sticking with it. The story jumps back and forth between the present and the fateful day and at times it jumped without warning and I found it a bit confusing. Nevertheless the secrets and lies, revelations from childhood and finally discovering the whole truth make this a really enjoyable read. The characters are dissected in such minute detail and with such skill that I felt I knew them all. I was given an ARC free by Netgalley in return for an honest review.
